The Who have announced a 12-date arena tour of the UK and Europe. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey will take the band back on the road to perform their 1973 Quadrophenia album in its entirety, along with a selection of Who classics.
The band have been very active these past few years. A five-disc Director’s Cut box set of the Quadrophenia album was issued in 2011, and 2012 saw a variety of releases including a Record Store Day 10-inch vinyl release featuring a selection of Pete Townshend’s Quadrophenia Demos, the Live At Hull live set issued as a standalone two-CD package, and all their studio albums collected together in The Studio Albums vinyl box set.
Live highlights last year included a barnstorming performance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games (celebrated with this picture disc) and a successful North American tour in November and early December.
